My last wedding of 2016 was in the Holiday Inn in Haydock near Wigan, with the lovely Laurie and Kev. 

The wedding took place all in one venue which made it easier for me as a wedding photographer. It's quite nerve wracking trying to get from one location to another before the bride on a wedding day. 

It was a gorgeous bright autumn day with nice colourful orange leaves and strong light which looked great in the photos! 

Before the service the music was provided by the wonderfully talented Northern String Quartet for walking up the aisle and in the reception afterwards. 

Kev and Laurie are massive Rugby League fans and they had arranged for the Rugby to be shown in the reception but, as usual people are having too much of a good time to watch the TV. 

Before I headed home I photographed some hilarious speeches by the father of the bride and the best man, including some unexpected gifts to the bride and groom. 

Congratulations Kev and Laurie!
